As an official Jewish mother I find nothing wrong with Sarah Palin describing what has been done to her as a Blood Libel. Blood Libel is the false accusation of murders. For millenia it has been the tool the Jew hater has used against the Jewish people. It is still the tool used to this very day routinely against the state of Israel. For the last 5 days it has been the tool used against Gov. Palin.
Gov Palin had no more to with the murders in Tucson than the Isreali Defense Force had to do with the Durah hoax http://www.jcpa.org/JCPA/Templates/ShowPage.asp?DRIT=3&DBID=1&LNGID=1&TMID=111&FID=624&PID=0&IID=2658&TTL=The_Muhammad_Al-Dura_Blood_Libel:_A_Case_Analysis
The irony of course is that the people now accusing Gov. Palin of falsely claiming blood libel are the same people who have used the blood libel against Israel: in the Durah hoax, the Jenin myth, and never ending list of “atrocities” that never happened. Gov. Palin and the state of Israel have the same enemies, using the same tools.
Welcome to the club Governor. I was born into it, but you had to work to get here. I salute you.
